What our students say
Obtaining a Maths with Finance degree from Plymouth University opened many opportunities career wise and enabled me to think about many varied career paths. Now in my profession it has enabled me to see things from a different point of view and ask questions that other people wouldn’t think of. It improved my analytical skills and also basic skills such as organising time to fit in both a social and a work life, which is especially important now that I am studying as well as working full time.
Having obtained a Maths with Finance degree I was exempt from a few of the early exams for the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), which meant I could skip these and start the higher level exams sooner. I am currently on the managerial level, having passed 10 exams so far. I hope to graduate by the end of 2012, when I will be a fully qualified management accountant. CIMA is a worldwide recognised qualification and as Ricoh is a global business, this will open lots of opportunities for me in the future.
